Dystopian/Utopian Collage

Bulzomi-Project1

For this project, we had to create a collage based on either the idea of a utopia or dystopia using at least six separate image sources.  We also had to scan two items to include in our image.  I chose to create a collage using Adobe Photoshop based on my idea of a utopia.  I chose utopia because I noticed a lot of the individuals in my class were choosing dystopia and I thought it would be a good change of pace.  I managed to find a nice image of the Canadian Rockies for the background and then layer with an image of a valley.  I also placed an image of a cabin.  The images I scanned were an image of a notebook and pen.  The last two items I included were a Bluetooth speaker and an adirondack chair.  I choose all of these items because each represents things that I enjoy and a place that I would be happy in if this existed.  This collage would really represent a true utopia of a good day or a good life in my eyes.  This was the first time I had ever used Photoshop.

Character Design

Bulzomi-Project2

This project was about creating an avatar or character that would fit in the universe of the novel Ready Player One using Adobe Illustrator.  This was the first time I was working in Adobe and working with Illustrator, so I tried to keep my character basic.  I attempted to create an 8-bit character similar Lara Croft Tomb Raider.  Ready Player One has a lot of 80’s inspiration, which is why I chose an 8-bit theme.  I used only boxes for the creation of my character and only slanted the edge of the sword my character is wielding.  To give my character more depth, I did gradients on her clothing, hair, backpack, and face.
